The glory and majesty of Christ.
The splendour and brilliance of Christ is an awesome wonder. John fell at His feet at the striking vision of Christ. The realization of who Christ really is should make us fall at our feet in complete awe of Him. It is not something to be afraid of, unless you are His enemy. The Bible says we are to come boldly into His presence. The right hand of the Lord was outstretched to John, asking Him not to be afraid. Christ is calling men and women to Him today, to draw close, so that they may see the fullness of His glory. He is the righteousness of those who believe in Him and there is nothing to be afraid of.
The presence of Christ is so great that it knocks people off their feet.
Joshua “fell on His face to the earth and worshiped,” when He beheld Christ (Josh.5:14). Even the sight of Angels knock people to their feet. Daniel “was afraid and fell on his face,” at the sight of Angel Gabriel in Daniel 8:17,18). During the transfiguration, the disciples “fell on their faces and were greatly afraid,” at the voice that came out of the cloud (Matthew 17:5). Saul “fell to the ground,” in Acts 9:4, when a spot light from Heaven suddenly stopped Him in His tracks.
The Spirit of the Lord can choose to manifest Himself in any way He pleases.
I believe we are living in a day and age where we need more of His manifest presence in our lives and in the Church. The reverential fear of the Lord is a good thing. By Grace, we can go boldly into God’s presence and ask for more of Him in our lives and the Church.
The First and the Last
There are many terms from the Old Testament used in Revelation. The words, “First and the Last” are used in Isaiah 44:6.
“Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel, And his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: I am the First and I am the Last…”
He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end (Rev.1:8). He started this world and He will end it. He existed before time began and will continue to exist forever. He is omnipotent, eternal and immutable. He is to be feared and honoured, with the greatest reverence. He is God Almighty.
